  1. 1. On an Efficient Method fo Time-Domain Computational Aeroelasticity

    Author : David Eller; Ulf Ringertz; Paolo Mantegazza; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aeroelasticity; unsteady aerodynamics; boundary element method; multidisciplinary simulation; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The present thesis summarizes work on developing a method for unsteady aerodynamic analysis primarily for aeroelastic simulations. In contrast to widely used prediction tools based on frequency-domain representations, the current approach aims to provide a time-domain simulation capability which can be readily integrated with possibly nonlinear structural and control system models.

  2. 2. Aeroelastic Concepts for Flexible Wing Structures

    Author : Sebastian Heinze; Ulf Ringertz; Bengt Winzell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; active aeroelasticity; flexible wings; aeroelastic control; design; experiments; testing; analysis; robust; uncertainty; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis summarizes investigations performed within design, analysis and experimental evaluation of flexible aircraft structures. Not only the problems, but rather the opportunities related to aeroelasticity are discussed. READ MORE

  3. 3. On improving efficiency of flight using optimization

    Author : Marianne Jacobsen; Ulf Ringertz; Virginia Torczon; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, optimization is used to improve the performance of aircraft. The focus is on operating current generation aircraft more efficiently rather than designing new aircraft. Drag minimization and aircraft trajectory optimization is used to increase efficiency. READ MORE

  4. 4. Real Time Drag Minimization

    Author : Marianne Jacobsen; Ulf Ringertz; Anders Forsgren; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aeronautics; optimization; experimental verification; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the use of multiple redundant control surfaces to increase performance during flight. There is no clear-cut definition of performance. It may differ between applications, but here, the amount of drag for a given flight condition is used. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of Dynamic Flight Loads

    Author : Natascha Jansson; Ulf Ringertz; David Eller; Peter Linde; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the determination of loads on an aircraft struc- ture during flight. The focus is on flight conditions where the loads are significantly time-dependent. Analysis of flight loads is primarily motivated to ensure that structural failure is avoided. READ MORE
